MADRID, 21 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Lithuanian Government has announced that its Armed Forces are already on alert after the "partial mobilization" announced on Wednesday by Russian President Vladimir Putin, fearing a possible "provocation" from the neighboring country.
The Lithuanian Defense Minister, Arvidas Anusauskas, has announced that the Rapid Reaction Force is already "on high alert", alleging that the Russian military mobilization will also take place "close" to the common border, specifically in the Kaliningrad region.
"Lithuania cannot just watch," Anusauskas said, in a series of messages on social networks in which he confirmed that the Lithuanian authorities are already analyzing how to increase the aid they currently provide to Ukraine.
For the minister, the call-up of some 300,000 reservists is evidence of the "desperation" of Moscow, which in recent weeks has seen how it has lost ground in eastern Ukraine as a result of the start of a military counteroffensive by Ukrainian troops. .
